Sally + Joe's Washington Library Wedding

Oops! I scheduled Sally and Joe's real wedding post for 6.23.10 and 7.24.10, instead of 6.24.10. If you can't recall, here is a link to the first blog post. Sally and Joe were married at St. Vincent de Paul and had their reception at the Washington Library.
All photos by Christopher Dimock Photography.

The gorgeous escort card table arrangement was inspired by the Fall season.

The centerpieces were tall and full.

On top of each menu and napkin was a small flower.

The tables were named after the couple's favorite books.
The couple had a copy of each book on the table.

The cake was simply decorated but was stunning by size.

A view of the room.

Once the lights went down, the room took a romantic turn with all of the candlelight.
Besides a guest book, the couple displayed wedding photos of other immediate family members.

Sally + Joe cut the gorgeous cake.
In the middle of their first dance!
The band gets the crowd moving!

The bride was having the time of her life!

Loving Kate Spade

Ever since Kate Spade left Kate Spade, I have loved the line. Seriously. Back in the day, when all those girls were running around with her fabric hand bags, I would roll my eyes. But now? Completely adore the brand. Just like these fun shoes, Chrisette. They would look fabulous under a wedding dress AND they will look great when you wear them again and again. And you know, you totally would.

Clocks: Anniversary or Birthday gifts!

Clocks are the modern suggestion for your first anniversary. And even though I have been coveting this Ghost clock for years, Denton decided to wait until my birthday (today!) to get this for me. It totally lives up to my expectations. Oh, and it is going to look great above our fireplace...once we paint it dark grey.

Who doesn't love a house full of photos?

The New York Times had a great article about using your snapshots to decorate your home. If you considering using your wedding photos, make sure to buy the rights from your photographer. You can use the photos in many ways besides the standard picture on the thank you card!

The article highlights using Shutterfly for large prints. Personally, I prefer CostCo. I am absolutely in love with CostCo - and printing photos at a low price is just one of the many reasons.

Our new home has two long hallways. My plan is to do a collage of photos of us and the baby for the downstairs to give it a more casual feel. For the upstairs, I am going to get prints of photos from our trips. Here is one of my favorites.

I'm sorry for the delay in posts! It's been a hectic few weeks. I closed, moved, celebrated the 4th of July, and started my third trimester all in the same week.

But after a few long phone calls, they were fantastic and sent someone out in just days to fix the problem.

Blog posts will be coming regularly very soon. Oh, and more than a few is going to be on home decor since that is my big focus right now.
